Professional Rights and Responsibilities of Faculty Members and Roles and Professional Responsibilities of Academic Leaders (PRR) is comprised of a policy document and a procedural document that set out in broad terms the privileges and responsibilities, as well as the standards of professional conduct for both the faculty and academic leaders. The policy document was approved by Provost Russell Moore on February 11, 2022. The current process document was endorsed by the Boulder Assembly on April 29, 2021 and approved by the Provost on June 8, 2021.
Faculty may contact the Office of Faculty Relations for an in-person department training or to find out more about the online Skilsoft training. Faculty may also contact the BFA Grievance Advisory Committee (GAC) for advice on grievances.
The PRR is an integral part of a suite of grievance policies for CU Boulder:
- Provost’s Advisory Committee on Faculty Grievance
- Titles, Roles, Appointment, Evaluation and Promotion of Non-Tenure-Track Faculty in Teaching and Librarian Positions
- NTT multi-year contract template
